I spent a Friday in Aleppo but found plenty to see and do. The light filtering into the (mostly closed) covered souks behind the Umayyad Mosque was quite eerie but the souk opposite the Citadel entrance and behind the thriving restaurants was open and full of shoppers. There is a jewellery shop on a corner on the west side of the ring road around the Citadel. The owner spent many years in the U.S.A. and was very helpful.
